5.0 out of 5 stars King James Bible for Kindle
Clear, simple, easy to read and more importantly searchable by book, chapter & verse etc. Far and away the best Kindle version I've seen so far.

I bought this bible, and found that the search facility didn't work, and was duly very disappointed. I followed the instructions and tried the search several times without success, getting the indexing error that other reviewers have mentioned. I actually returned it for a refund.

Then I had a brainwave! Working in IT, I suddenly realised that an index cannot be completed without going to the end of the file. So, I downloaded the bible again, paged through the instructions, then went to the end of Revelation 22. Hey presto! The indexing obviously then completed, and the search facility now works. It's a pity the publishers don't tell you this. So I modified this review to make it helpful to others who've had the same problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indexing, 14 Aug 2011

'HOW DO YOU MAKE IT INDEX?' asks one reviewer. The answer: follow the instructions given. If you start at the beginning, with the instructions, and page forward to the start of the biblical text, then searches will work. Until then an error message is given to the effect that indexing hasn't yet taken place.
I like this edition: the text is as expected, the table of contents is easy to use, and the verse-search is a bonus.

like a previous reviewer I have three times followed the instructions for activating the search function and each time received the error message that indexing was not complete.

Excellent. But Read the instructions first otherwise you will not find what your looking for. Worth getting for anyone who knows what they are looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Searchable? Not yet., 21 July 2011

This review is from: SearchByVerseTM Bible (KING JAMES VERSION): Fully Searchable By Book, Chapter and Verse: SEARCHABLE KJV BIBLE WITH COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS [Illustrated] (SearchByVerse ... Bible | Search By Verse Bible Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
It's all there, bar the Apocrypha, whose absence I don't mind. It's well formatted and I thought, finally, I'd found a decent reference text.... BUT: I downloaded, read the instructions through to enable the promised superduper trademarked search function and tried to search in accordance with said instructions, only to get a message on my lovely new kindle 3g, "This item not indexed. Try again later." Search works as expected on my Kindle for Mac app, but not on the Kindle itself. So my question to anyone else who's bought this item for its searchability, HOW DO YOU MAKE IT INDEX?

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and good to back in the old version, 21 Feb 2013

This review is from: SearchByVerseTM Bible (KING JAMES VERSION): Fully Searchable By Book, Chapter and Verse: SEARCHABLE KJV BIBLE WITH COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS [Illustrated] (SearchByVerse ... Bible | Search By Verse Bible Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
The Bible is for reference but as a read start to finish ... not recommended. Read Gospel of St John first and then Genesis to get a feel what the Christian faith is all about. Today's younger folk will find words and expressions a little difficult to grasp so have a modern version to compare (say .... " Into the Light")

It is so useful to have the Bible at your fingertips wherever you happen to be. This is great for finding that vaguely remembered passage quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Technology! Yes you CAN search by verse, 2 Jun 2011
This review is from: SearchByVerseTM Bible (KING JAMES VERSION): Fully Searchable By Book, Chapter and Verse: SEARCHABLE KJV BIBLE WITH COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS [Illustrated] (SearchByVerse ... Bible | Search By Verse Bible Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This KJV actually does hat it says on the tin. You can quite literally search by verse. The technology is the best I have ever seen, and I hope that it gets rolled out to as many Kindle books as possible.
